This morning I read a post by Stacey of Poofing the Pillows titled "When It Feels Like Your Creativity and Motivation Are Just Gone!" - Stacey has a good excuse because they are in the process of building a house.
I on the other hand have projects waiting like painting the back porch and sewing new covers for the chaises in the garden, but I can't seem to push myself.
So, rather than tackle one of the big ticket items on my list, I headed to Trader Joe's.
These days my creativity seems to be limited to photography
and I decided to buy flowers and have fun simply styling them and taking pictures.
5 different bouquets of flowers became the props for playing with my camera.
I keep seeing pics on Instagram with a bag of flowers hanging on a hook - this is my version.
Another pic I see is flowers (in some sort of container) on a chair - I like my massive lavender plant peeking out in the background.
This spring, bicycle baskets filled with flowers catch my eye on IG - I staged mine in front of a favorite house in my neighborhood knowing that the out of town owners wouldn't be around.
After snapping the photos, I had to find homes for the flowers - I think my new pig on wheels makes a nice accompaniment to the daisies.
The vignette I set up last week before we headed to Sacramento to visit our daughter was looking really sad,
so I spiffed it up with the purple freesia - at least I think that's what the flowers are!
I have loads of asparagus fern in the garden,
but it's a pain to sweep up and the carnations seem to last forever.
I added left over greenery to this bowl on the dining room - Lulu was a bad girl when we were in Sacramento and ate my new air plants that were sitting in the bowl.
